Woven Words

Like a dropped stitch

I didn’t see your absence

until much later,

when the narrowing become obvious

but I couldn’t find the courage

to unpick all that I had done.

Carol Forrester is a twenty-four year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.


      • Small things when left as they are tend to create bigger issues than ever imagined! Like you said in the last two lines…

        • Like small things are innocuous and generally skip the eye, but when left same way, they come back with bigger issues which requires excess efforts which would otherwise have been miniscule….

          Hope I made my point!!

        • Ah okay. That’s an interesting take. My intention when writing is veered more towards loosing someone from your life but not realizing that the space between you has grown so far until it’s too late.
          I like your take on it though. The point of poetry is that it can be interpreted more than one way.

          • Yup! Totally agree…you can always explore new perspective to writings…like you would have never thought!

            Glad we talked our way through it….
            Have a great day!!

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
